Two zany ditch diggers join an expedition intent on returning a cursed treasure to the burial chamber of Egyptian King Pharatime. But when a crazed killer starts spreading comedic terror in the tomb, who will come rescue the MUMMY'S BOYS?
This starts out as a suspense tale, with mysterious deaths & a Pharaoh's curse, but it soon becomes a typical Wheeler & Woolsey comedy (Bert Wheeler is the one with the curly hair; Robert Woolsey has the cigar & spectacles). The Boys are always fun to watch and this film is no exception, even if the plot is exceptionally silly. Unlike Laurel & Hardy, who relied heavily on slapstick & physical humor, Wheeler & Woolsey's comedy derived largely from the dialogue. Their best bit here: the `twenty miles as the crow flies' routine.
Barbara Pepper is Wheeler's love interest here; Willie Best adds to the craziness.
